Stevia kills Borrelia - in all three forms

Dr. Richard Horowitz, LLMD and author of "Why Can't I Get Better?" says,

Borrelia burgdorferi has been shown to be able to persist in the body. Prior work on Stevia had shown it to be effective against Borrelia biofilms, and in this paper by researchers at the University of New Haven, Stevia was shown to be effective against different morphological forms, as per the three-antibiotic combination (doxy, cefoperazone and daptomycin) shown to be effective by Johns Hopkins researchers. "J. Feng et al.also showed that the three-antibiotic combination (doxycycline, cefoperazone, and daptomycin) was very potent in eliminating the stationary phase rich persisters of Borrelia. In this study, we provided evidence that Stevia A, as an individual agent, was capable of eliminating the spirochetes and the persisters of Borrelia similar to the reported three-drug combination treatment. Our data also showed that the antibiotics in combination on the persisters of Borrelia was indeed consistent with the previous study".

Lancaster County man honored for Lyme Disease research

Lancaster County man honored for Lyme Disease research


A Lancaster County (PA) man received one of two Lyme Poster Awards at the 2016 European International Lyme and Associated Disease Society Conference.

Bob Miller founded the Ephrata-based NutriGenetic Research Institute in 2015 and is its primary researcher.

He has been offering naturopathic treatments for years and became interested in "why some patients with chronic Lyme disease fail to get better with their physician-directed treatment protocol."

Miller reported recruiting about 400 people, half with chronic Lyme disease, to have their DNA analyzed by 23andMe and send him copies, as well as complete a survey on tick-borne diseases.

The award was based on his report of his findings that those with chronic Lyme share similar genetic variants.

Even more articles on the connection between Alzheimer's and the gut

A dozen or so in the past decade. Search PubMed for "Proal AD[au]" for them, or get the fulltext preprints of most of them from: http://mpkb.org/home/publications

Or you could look at the conference presentations on this YouTube channel:

Link between Alzheimer's and gut bacteria

The subject line says it all. There seems to be a growing body of research and evidence linking neurological disorders and gut health. I find this very promising, of course, just as was the case with peptic ulcers and bacteria in the stomach.
